St. Maarten Carnival
The island comes together on the Dutch side over 17 unforgettable days and nights. For months locals put their souls into sewing Carnival costumes and writing Calypso songs for the big celebrations. If the partygoers are not hitting the street they are most likely to be jammin' to the tunes and food in Carnival Village which sits on the edge of Philipsburg and is constructed just for the carnival. The Front Street parade passes just steps from Sonesta Great Bay Beach Resort & Casino, plus all the Carnival activities are walking distance!
